Concept development with the Tangerine Design team developing future concepts for automotive and photography projects.
Becoming an Ambassador for the college has been a positive character building experience. Being called up to represent the college both internally for open days, degree shows, portfolio workshops, and other events has meant I have had to interact with younger students, visitors to the college and voice my opinions. When representing the college externally by showing my portfolio, running workshops and meeting people, the need to give off a good image for the college was paramount.
Won a competition to design public artwork in West London. Professional engagement, live budget and construction project. My design, an archway emblazoned with students illustrations, required planning a focused day long drawing workshop that over a 1000 pupils took part in. Currently completing planning permission, and organising the manufacture of the structure scheduled to be in the coming year.
This involved illustration projects for an ‘A to Z’ poster of landmarks in Oxford, some animation tasks and graphic identity work for a local business.
Completed carvings, tailoring stones that were set into listed buildings, and completed an emblem carving that is now centre stage at my former school. Also learnt about project management.
